If nobody is going to Dinosaur, is anyone up for an Owens Valley trip over Labor Day weekend? I'd like to go, weather permitting.

I'm in... I don't think I can swing a big road trip to Dinosaur this year after all, so Owens sounds great.

If coming, decide if you want to camp or stay in Lone Pine. If you want a room, check out the Dow hotel or wherever because they will fill up, if they aren't already.
I'll probably be in Tuttle Creek.

I just realized that one must be an H4 to fly Walt's Point Embarassed Rolling Eyes (for obvious reasons) so maybe I'll just go to camp and chase.
Another reason to get my 4 Wink

You only need an H3 to fly the morning. H4 is for midday!

Kia flys the Owens most every weekend. He says that you can launch as early as 8:30 AM or 9 and still get a great flight! Probably a good idea to launch early for H-3s.

Let's meet this Saturday afternoon after flying and discuss things. Try to make it if you are interested in going next weekend.

I am trying to get away myself so I would like to coordinate with the Owens group if possible. I have a driver.

Rat on Fred, you may be the one(s) to keep this trip alive. I would drive up early Friday and could show the nearby LZs to anyone who hasn't been there yet.

So far weather looks good for both Saturday and Sunday. I will try to fly at least 1 day. Where do you plan stay? Tuttle Creek?

I'm still planning to go up. Probably drive up Saturday morning and fly Sunday and Monday, assuming I can work it out up there. If not, I'll read, float and hike.

I'd love to but it is my anniversary. Isn't the Crestline event the week after

Just got a report from Arthur in Independence. The valley is smoked out, evidently from fires east of Fresno. He's heading for Mingus.\
Oh well...
